A classic tweed sweater with a twist, this cozy knitted garment will keep you warm all winter. Its flattering slim silhouette is enhanced by the vertical decorative seams running down the body and the top of the sleeves. The twist is the contrasting edges worked in a lace weight yarn. They add just the right amount of interest to give this casual wear sweater a touch of elegance.
The Kolk-sweater is knit using the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Myers, i. e. it is worked in one piece from the top down. This makes it very easy to try the garment on as you go and add or subtract rounds whenever necessary to create a perfect fit.
Kolk is designed to be a flattering fit for small, medium and larger sizes. To achieve this, the pattern calls for extensive waist shaping in the small and medium sizes (sizes 32-38) and moderate waist shaping in the large sizes (sizes 40-46). From size 48 upwards, the sweater is knitted in an A-line. Kolk is shown with moderate waist shaping.
15 stitches and 22 rounds = 10 cm (4 in)

My name is Jana Huck. I live in Luebeck, Germany. I started knitting when I searched for something that I still could do while being sick and it has become a passion. I almost started designing right from the beginning as I had no patience for following directions. I always need a challenge when I knit. I love to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. Then I find a way to do it. Whenever I see hand-knitted items, I try to figure out in my head how they were knit. Of course, there are many, many knitwear designers that I admire and to relax, I now love to work from their patterns.
I feel that it is very fulfilling to write down my ideas and share them with other knitters. Hooray for the internet which is making this so easy!
I have been knitting for a few years now. I am still in awe by the many possibilities. I definitely do not knit fast enough. ;)
